Create Paper Cuttings on Your iPad in Procreate + Digital, Hand Cut, and Cricut Machine Cutting
I have been in love with card making since I was old enough to hold scissors without adults in the room, but all my classes so far have focused on creating digital images in Procreate. So I thought it was time to create a class to show how I bring my digital work onto paper! This process in quick and easy, but also super rewarding and adaptable for tons of digital and paper projects.
In the class, I’ll show you how to create both digital and real paper cutouts so you can choose the method that works best for your materials and style. We’ll create the designs in Procreate, then use them to create digital images, and printable images for cutting by hand or with a cutting machine.
When you take this class you’ll get all of the brushes and stamps I use in the class including some pattern brushes, silhouette stamps, and templates.
First we’ll turn a silhouette of an animal into a patterned cutout. I’ll show you how to use geometric shapes to break up the space, and how to fill a shape with pattern. We’ll cover how to create patterns and pattern brushes, so you can turn your own custom pattern into a cutout.
Next we’ll create an intricate mandala shape and cover how to design both positive and negative shapes when you’re designing your cutouts. I’ll show you how to apply color and shadow to the digital images, so you can post those online, or just use them as a way to mock up your final cuts on paper.
Next we’ll create a multi-colored cutout combining text and hand drawn plant forms. I’ll show you how to use a simple silhouette to create an eye catching pattern around text, and give you some ideas for plant forms that you can use in your own project.
The amazing thing about this process is you can turn any image into a beautiful digital or printed cutout. These projects are perfect for creating greeting cards, wall art, or for posting on social media or your website. Turning your artwork into a cutout is a great way to make your lettering or illustrations stand out online and in person.
All you need to take this class is your iPad and a stylus. I’ll be using the Apple Pencil, but you could use any stylus, or even your finger. I’ll also be using some 65 lb cardstock, an Exacto knife, and a Cricut cutting machine, but you don’t need those if you just want to create digital images.
